. and so i think they're trying to fend that off. bill moyers: obama campaigned on higher rates. and he won. why can't republicans come to terms with that that's how the election came out? yves smith: the republicans have become very dedicated to the idea that taxes in any form are bad. that when, in fact, there are times when taxes can fund productive investments and actually, again, lead to more economic growth. but it's the republicans and ironically, wall street, have basically adopted the same strategy of being non-negotiable. that if they have a blocking position, and they feel that they have a blocking position by virtue of their majority in the house, that they're going to take advantage of it. so regardless of what the election said, if they can stymie a deal to their own advantage, they will. >> given what both of you are saying, why are we talking about reducing the deficit instead of creating jobs? because when people have jobs, they spend money. when they spend money, businesses have customers. when they have customers, the money keeps circulating. and yet washington isn't talk

ago between bill moyers and a former justice talking about the constitution. this question goes to what is at the heart of constitutionalism and the rule of law. in the course of that conversation, after a long discussion about constitutionalism, black man turns to moyers and says it is really the preamble that breathes life into the constitution. i wonder where it -- whether that is a point of view that you hold and whether you think it has relevance. >> the preamble, we, the people of the united states. i used to be able to quote it. i do not think i can now. the preamble is important. we, the people. but it is not the only thing. i had a very interesting conversation in china. i have gone there twice. the first time was a few years ago. i went to beijing and then we went to shanghai. in shanghai, whereas to meet with a group of businessmen. these businessmen had all been involved in the dot.coms and had lost a lot of money. most of them had made a lot back. i was fascinated. one of them said, i prefer the cultural revolution. then you knew the government was the enemy. now yo

to fix it, from lawn moyers to lamps. ones in seattle we went to see meet once a month and everyone is well come. >> this is really rewarding to actually have success story coming out. and even the things that we don't actually succeed in fixing, this is actually learning experience, to get things taken apart and see how they function and see what is wrong with it. >> reporter: well the goal is really to do away with our throwaway society. instead of buying new items they hope to teach other that is the old ones can work just as well. in an economy like this probably a good thing. kelly: sounds like a really good deal. one man's junk become's another's treasure. does it cost anything to join? >> reporter: no. the suggested ad ismation is -- admission is five dollars to rent out the meeting space. they point out you save money and help you do and of course save the planet. >> everything has built in obsolescence and minute it breaks or, the minute the newest gadget comes out people have to get the new one and throw the old one away. we don't have to live like that. it is expensive. a
